Hi all,
I bought a Tamron 17-50 f2.8 (non-VC) and it arrived today. So far so good, but I've only had a little play with it.

Congrats! Have fun with this lens. I never used it, but heard just the best of it - especially about the non-VR-version, you bought.

Hi,
I'd read a couple of reviews that said the non-vr was sharper than the vr version. Plus with max focal length of 50mm I couldn't see that I'd need the vr very often if ever.

Thanks, Steve.

Thanks for posting those pictures and hope to see more. That is a lens I have been looking at for about a month now. Glad to see it looks that sharp. I am always shy when it comes to non Nikon lens. Then again, I love my Tamron 70-300 I got this past summer.
